At the end of the article:

"CERT recommends that Explorer users consider other browsers that are not affected by the attack, such as Mozilla, Mozilla Firefox, Netscape and Opera. Mac, Linux and other non-Windows operating systems are immune from this attack. For people who continue to use the Internet Explorer, CERT and Microsoft recommend setting the browser's security settings to "high," but that can impair some browsing functions."

Mozilla user here since Mozilla 0.7!

Now I'm using Firefox 0.9. Never had a single problem with these things.

Testify!

At this point, using IE is kind of like driving a golf cart onto the driving range. You just know everyone is aiming for you!
